Research Labs

A large percentage of the total floor space available to the department is earmarked for a number of laboratories, underscoring the high value that we ascribe to hands-on learning experiences throughout our curriculum. The main instructional undergraduate laboratories are the circuits laboratory, the digital logic laboratory, the microprocessor laboratory, the electronics laboratory, the computer laboratory, the control laboratory, and the communications laboratory. Additionally a power engineering laboratory is being reshaped with modern equipment. A senior design laboratory in MDSN 251 houses the robotics project as well as other senior design projects. The CAPE (Cajun Advanced Picosatellite Experiment) laboratory in MDSN 146 supports senior design projects related to the CAPE mission. In addition to area-specific equipment, these laboratories are equipped with standard electronic test and measurement equipment such as oscilloscopes, signal sources, meters and a variety of electronic components. A full list of equipment is available in Appendix C. The department’s annual operating budget is generally sufficient for periodic replenishment of components and for repairs to equipment. Overall management of the labs is the responsibility of a full time Laboratory manager. Shelby Williams, our current Lab Manager, holds a BSEE degree and is well versed in maintenance of electronic equipment and computer systems.
